Life is in such an unpredictable state right now. Looking ahead, our life could be the exact same, doing the exact same kinds of things six months from now, or it could be radically different.
The making decisions, the setting goals, the planning ahead is so scary.
Success may be impossible depending on how life goes.
I want organized, thorough, a goal in every area of life, but only a few things are pressing strong on my heart in this season.
“Let me hear in the morning of your steadfast love, for in you I trust.
Make me know the way I should go, for to you I lift up my soul.”
My goals may not happen on January first. The plans, the resolutions may come and go throughout the year. But on my heart, right now, these words keep revolving.
I want 2014 to be a year of more.
More in love with my Savior
More ministry happening
More being still
More ability to do each of these things and all of these things
I want 2014 to be a year of better…not just quantity, quality
Better meditating on my Savior
Better attention to how I’m loving my Savior through every moment
I want 2014 to be a year of thriving…however easy, however hard.
Thriving in work
Thriving in pain
Thriving in love
Thriving in service
Thriving in relationships
Thriving in leadership
Thriving in my soul
God doesn’t call us to plateau, to arrive, or to survive.
He calls us to grow. And I guess that’s my theme for this year. I want to grow. I want to take the growth He’s worked me through 2013 and keep going. I don’t want to feel like I’ve established a good momentum. I want to surge forward into what is next.
I have a few. Some I’m starting tomorrow. Some I’m still praying and dreaming about. And that’s okay.
Because life isn’t January 1st to December 31st. It’s messy and mixed up and sometimes God says wait. So I’m waiting and praying. Praying to hear of His steadfast love in the morning and that He will make me to know the way I should go.
